Circa present two shows at Theatre Royal Sydney

Circa returns with premiere season at Theatre Royal Sydney

In an exciting new partnership with GWB Entertainment and Trafalgar Entertainment, Circa is thrilled to announce their premiere season at Theatre Royal Sydney,  20-24 April 2022.

The internationally successful contemporary circus company based in Brisbane will present two of its incredible shows during the strictly limited season in Sydney. The masterful ‘Wolfgang’s Magical Musical Circus’ will entertain the youngest circus fans during school holidays, whilst Circa’s ‘Peepshow’ will bring the intensity to the evening when the sun goes down.

Circa’s Artistic Director, Yaron Lifschitz, shared their excitement regarding the two contrasting shows and their Sydney debut.

“I love that we are presenting two complementary but different visions of Circa’s work in the same week,” said Lifschitz.

“‘Peepshow’ is hot, sweaty, sexy and tough. Moving from cabaret to nightclub it is full of high energy acts and muscular acrobatics for adults who want to laugh, gasp and feel the burn.

“‘Wolfgang’s Magical Musical Circus’ is a chocolate-coated Brussel sprout of a show – an hour of Mozart’s music children love to experience. It’s a hilarious madcap ride crammed with acrobatics and skills and lots of surprises.”

Circa’s Executive Director, Shaun Comerford, shared the sentiment and enthused about presenting at Theatre Royal Sydney.

“The Theatre Royal is an iconic piece of the Sydney theatre landscape and its refurbishment is stunning,” said Comerford.

“We are thrilled to present these seasons of Circa’s ‘Peepshow’ and ‘Wolfgang’s Magical Musical Circus’ in this special venue with world-leading partners GWB Entertainment and Trafalgar Entertainment.”

‘Wolfgang’s Magical Musical Circus’ will offer something for families during the day. Straight from the score and onto the stage, the man known as Mozart appears amid a storm of powder, tumbling and twirling, as musical mayhem and movement fuse in this family show with a circus twist. To those who know him, he is Wolfgang, the dart-playing ratbag. To those who are watching and listening, he is the wigged genius, Mozart.

Designed to amaze people from the age of three and upwards, ‘Wolfgang’s Magical Musical Circus’ reinvents the composer’s magical music in a skilful and illuminating show featuring Circa’s dexterous daredevil artists and a live accordionist. Watch as the notes are physically lifted off the page as performers bring the renowned compositions to life under the eccentric swirl of the conductor’s baton.

By nightfall, however, Circa’s ‘Peepshow’ turns cabaret on its head, literally. embark on a seductive dance through the hall of mirrors within your imagination. ‘Peepshow’ lurches from the thrillingly acrobatic to the comically playful. Expect teetering towers of balanced bodies, extreme bending, beguiling burlesque, and devilishly precarious aerials.

Under the direction of circus visionary Yaron Lifschitz, Circa’s Peepshow combines some of the finest acrobatic talents to create a playfully exhilarating ride into the beautifully bizarre recesses of your mind.

Director of GWB Entertainment, Richelle Brookman, shared the joy Circa brings to its audiences with its imaginative shows.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to partner with one of the world’s leading performance companies,” said Brookman.

“What Circa brings to the professionalism of contemporary circus in Australia and the world, is phenomenal. They’re really leading the charge in this space.

“We can’t wait to share these two performances with Sydney audiences. If you think you know circus, just wait until you see these spectacular shows – there’s truly something for everyone.”

Circa’s strictly limited season performs from 20-24 April 2022.
